The accident left him with several broken ribs and severe facial injuries, drastically impacting his life.
A £9 Million Settlement
It has been reported that a substantial £9 million settlement has been negotiated, covering two years’ worth of lost earnings due to the “life-altering” injuries Flintoff sustained.
A BBC Studios spokesperson expressed support for Flintoff’s rehabilitation and future plans, emphasizing their commitment to his recovery.
Top Gear’s Uncertain Future
In March, the BBC decided not to resume making the series following an internal investigation into the accident. The decisions about the future of Top Gear episodes will be made “in due course in conjunction with BBC Content.”
